4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Sergios World Beers. Pours opaque black with a tall tan head. Roast aroma with some toasty notes in the aroma. Full-bodied mouthfeel, rich roasty, malty, chocolately flavors with an underlying sweetness. Long finish of all those flavors. One not to pass up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice dark brown with a very thin head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is sweet with chocolate, hints of cream and roasted almond. Taste comes on roasted malt with an excellent finish of creamy chocolate. Medium body with low carbonation. I am a big fan of Bellís as a brewery and this dessert stout does not disappoint. Recommended indeed.

Pours dark black with thin khaki head. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, malty, toffee, good! Flavor is the same, but with a tangy quality. I like it.

This was an easy drinking standard stout for me. Perhaps the batch I had was a little too old?

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Not an all bad aroma. Pours dark brown with a slight head. Sweet, vanilla/chocolate taste. Pleasant aftertaste, like after eating candy. No offensive. Not refreshing.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bellís has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you canít go wrong. And, a nice stout for those not into stouts. A sweet tasting stout with a chocolate malt aroma. Pours a deep, rich black color with little head. A silky, creamy texture with little carbonation that is long on the finish. Best sipped and savored, not chugged!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is batch 8825.
Appearance - Dark brown, with a 1 finger light cream head. Head recedes to a fluffy ring clinging to the edge of the glass. Looks watery in thickness.
Smell - I get lots of smoke, slight tartness like cherries, blueberries, and roasted barley.
Taste - Roasted barley comes through strong. Tastes kind of "woody" to me. There is some slight coffee and maybe even some chocolate too.
Mouthfeel - Very light, just how it looked. I was expecting more, maybe even a creamier feeling.
Drinkability - This is very easy to drink, however it is not my favorite so I wouldnt really wany to drink it much.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great stuff. Definitely needed to be called a "double cream" with the forceful sweetness evident. I can taste honey. Subtlely smokey. Bellís doesnít let me down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear and nearly black with a nice big brown creamy head which diminishes quickly. Smells like choclate chip cookies and dark coffee. Also maybe a bit of banana and toffee. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation...fairly creamy textured. Heavy smokey flavor...more coffee. Okay, but only OK...
